The sky is a light shade of calm
The trees, though leafless, embody peace
A few flowers remain, remembering
what was and anticipating
what will be and pondering
what might have been
if not for the colour red
The prompt at dVerse is “meteorological poetry” – in other words, poems that say something about the weather. Today is also Remembrance Day (or in other parts of the world, Veterans’ Day or Armistice Day). This is a day set aside to remember those who have given their lives in conflict, so that future generations might live at peace.
